We have had a fairly busy week that started at Kempton on Monday where we ran Pickamix . I thought he was the biggest certainty that had ever left my yard but unfortunately he didn't get home and it transpired that he needs a wind operation .
We got Fixed Rate in on Tuesday after his appointment with the vet to be gelded and he has got over it well .I'm not sure I would be in as good a spirits as him if I had just lost my tackle but hopefully I won't find out !He has started cantering and looks like a really nice type he will have his first school tomorrow .
We ran Seventh Sky at Bangor on Wednesday and he normally takes about three runs to get himself ready but he ran an absolute blinder to finish second in a very competitive chase . He is in the Hennessy but will probably go for the Becher Chase at Aintree as he was second over those fences last year .I ran a nice horse called Royals and Rebels at Ludlow over an inadequate trip and on ground that was too quick but considering all that he ran well to finish fifth .
We all had a lovely time at Cheltenham on Friday when Cody Wyoming ran a good race to finish fourth . The next day we were back at Cheltenham with Some Kinda Lama but the heavens opened and I had to take him out .
On Sunday we went to Fontwell where Morney Wing was a bit unlucky as he got hampered at the start and still managed to finish fourth although he had to come from a long way back . We also ran a nice horse called Like the Sound who got a bit tired but had a good first outing.
Its a pretty quiet week for us this week as we don't have many horses in.and you can't run the same ones all the time.However its been a good week for selling horses and bringing new owners into the yard so we should survive!
